Reviewed January 18, 2014

The Feel is much more important than the ambiance when you think about temples and churches .. Kalikambal temple will definitely give a thumbs up in it ..

“Small and wonderful temple in the heart of Chennai”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The Kalikambal temple is one of the old temples in Chennai with a history of few hundred years. The great king Shivaji visited the temple once. The goddesses Kaliakmbal is in a siting posture with a kind face. A must visit temple if you are spiritual person.
The crowd management was not great, it would be bit hard especially during Tuesdays and Fridays when the crowd would be at its peak. Parking around the temple is bit hard.

“Powerful Goddess in an ancient temple”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A very old temple in the old town area of Northern Chennai. Very ancient temple dedicated to Goddess Mahakali. It is stated that the great Marata king Shivaji visited this temple. The priests are called Shivachars. The temple Goddess is very powerful and devotees throng this place to get her blessings. The street on which this temple is located is very narrow and always crowded. Better to park the car in some distance and walk. In spite of the huge crowd of devotees, the premises are well maintained.

“Believer's solace.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

India's mysticism carries few ancient realities winning modern flavor. 50% of the world population can not be second class citizens. Kalikamba is divinity for the faithful to deliver us from our mundane miseries. Not an architectural beauty, peaceful bliss nevertheless.
